When visiting a friend’s house it’s typically customary to bring something to supplement the meal. Classic examples are wine, desert and/or flowers for the table. If you don’t choose wine, soda is typically the next option.
But what if you want to bring something healthier to drink? What beverage options do you have? Plenty!
My wife and I found ourselves in this situation earlier this week. We got asked to bring drinks to go with pizza. Clearly it’s a casual evening and thankfully pizza is flexible enough that pretty much any drink will go well with it. While deciding what to get, I thought it would be fun to share what I found.
Some healthy choices:
- Orange juice – a great substitutive for soda
- Apple juice – pick a cloudy one
- Cranberry juice – good for non-sweet occasions
- Mango juice
- Pineapple juice
- Tomato juice
- Green tea – instead of coffee
Notice that most are juices. For the most part you can’t go wrong if you choose a juice. Just head over to that aisle of your store and pick something from there. Your host will appreciate it and you’ll feel good for choosing a healthy beverage.
